This could be several things. Temperature sensor, relay or solenoid, broken wire, etc. Use of a voltmeter and a schematic is likely to troubleshoot.

Hiace starting problems


Is the battery in a good condition, it a diesel engine? If so the glow plugs would be the first point of call. Check for power at the glow plug main wire feed, if you have power there then a wiring fault can be ruled out. If not check your glow plug relay and associated wiring. If you have power, I think from memory its only 11 volts, remove the power balance rod that runs across the top of your glow plugs. Then remove the glow plugs and connect them across a battery hold the threaded body of the glow plugs and the negitive terminal and use a piece of wire to connect the small fine threaded end to the positive terminal on the battery. The glow plug should glow a hot bright red within a few seconds of being connected. If it doesnt it is faulty. 1 faulty glow plug puts strain on the other glow plugs. Id replace all 4 if any are faulty. I hope this helps.

Starting issue, I have a 1993 ford f250 7.3l pre powerstroke. I started the motor and it stalled out like there was a short, now when i turn the key my glow plugs do not fire and wait to start doesnt show...


On some Models the glow plug Relay does not have an integrated Power Relay. This means there is a second Relay before the glow plug Relay that feeds it power.

You should check the wires running to the glow plug Relay for power with the key ON. Check some other wires off of the Ignition switch to make sure your 20 year old Ignition switch is good.

There are some sites which show vehicle wiring. Autozone has a free section after Registering your vehicle but it takes a little sorting through the Help section. There should be a fuse to protect the above Relays.

Make sure you find the Diesel-equipped wiring circuit. Diesel ignitions are different from gas units.

Glow plug maybe out on 2005 f350 king ranch


2 ways to check 1) have key out of ignition, remove glow plug power rail, get ohm meter on top of glow plug where rail bolts on & base of plug where you bolt it in. check all plugs & should be similar. 2) remove plugs & hook jumper leads to battry, connect - jump lead to base of plug where it screws into the block, touch tip of plug where power rail bolts on with the + jumper lead but do not touch the heating element of the plug extremely hot extremely quick. hold power on for 5 - 7 sec until glow bright red. repeat with all plugs (faulty ones will take longer to glow or not glow at all)

Getting a P1391 error code on my 01 Caravan, Changed PCM Sensors, wires, plugs, EGR, Whats Next? Please


P1391 Glow Plug Circuit Low Input (Bank #1)
  • DTC P1391 or P1393 will set when the monitor indicates that all four glow plugs are not being powered on that bank. An open in the glow plug circuits, glow plug relay, glow plugs or monitoring circuit could be the possible causes.

    Both DTCs P1391 and P1393 together will set when the monitor indicates that all eight glow plugs are not being powered. An open in all glow plug circuits, the glow plug relay, glow plugs, fusible links or all three monitoring circuits could be the possible causes.
  • Possible causes:
    • glow plug relay
    • glow plug shunt
    • open in glow plug circuit(s) or monitoring circuit(s)
    • glow plugs
    • PCM

2001 Jetta Tdi runs rough


Hi Whitneyford
Your priblem sounds more like the glow plug timer relay than the exhaust. White smoke after start up is a sign of diesel entering the exhaust before it has burned completly. This is as a result of the glow plugs switching off too early, which is usually caused by one or more faulty glow plugs or a faulty timer.With engine COLD, IGNITION ON... Check voltage with all 4 plugs connected. You should have a reading of 10--12 volts
If there is no power, check in-line fuse on loom coming to plugs.
If power is present, check for How Long. If only for a few seconds, the problem is with the timer. This unit (the larger of the relays and usually black in colour) is fitted on the fuse board, and there are a few different types. They come in 7 pin..8 pin..and even 9 pin units.
The glow plug light is often NOT accurate (even with a new timer unit fitted) as to the time of heating, and you will almost certainly find that power will flow to the plugs for quiet some time after the light goes out. This is not unusuall with The Jetta Tdi.
Good luck.
I hope this helps you sort out this problem

Loss of power, glow plug light on when no power black smoke


If the head has been replaced have the pump timing checked.It sounds like they have not set the fuel pump timing right for you.Yes its a possibility its the EGR valve but all you have to do with that is remove it and claen it with carb cleaner.And replace it.

Glow plug problem


We had a similar problem and you might wish to investigate the following
Check that the steering column has not created a cascade of (?copper) shavings onto your ignition circuits in the steering column itself (from the power steering assembly in the top of the steering wheel head) - we had this on our 1992 LHD column gear Ducato and it made the glow lamps come on and light up all the time causing overheating and smoking , cleaning the circuits and wiring in there and lubricating the disc sorted it out - after some costly cylinder head removal etc - we learnt the hard way !!!!!
